Douglass Doan - OSC

I was so happy to be asked for this assignment! And then all the life happened. Lots of outside family events started to take up all my time and energy. Wording became hard, calligraphy was difficult, and the Cadel took a long time to learn. On the upside, I was able to teach myself to […]

Lady Ellynor Redpath - OSW

2020 has been a trying year. The stress of all that’s been going on though the year has taken its toll on my drive to art. The few assignments I’ve received have helped considerably. This one was a rough one. My brain kept flipping between complex and simple. In the end, a simple take on […]

This was one of those scrolls that just kind of fell into my lap. Audry’s student, Octavia had worked on the illumination and Audrye ran short on time to do the calligraphy, so she asked me to help out. The words were zen scrolled during the recording of court. Zen Scroll: scroll text that is […]

Astryda Borowska - Order of the Silver Crecent

Took on this assignment and was at a loss for what to do for illumination. I”d did some searching through the EK Wiki and browsed through her husband”s blog but had a really hard time coming up with ideas. So I set upon creating the words to see if that would give me some inspiration, […]

Tyger Scribes in Trying Times

At the beginning of the 2020 lockdowns in the Eastkingdom, our Signet and a few others came up with an idea for an auction to help fund the making of masks. The Scribes of the east, Tyger Scribes as we would be dubbed, were light on projects and were in need of a pick-me-up and […]

Wine ink (part 1)

Back in September of 2019, while packing to move, I”d stumbled across two partial bottles of red wine. A sniff test told me that they were pretty much undrinkable. I”d be a shame to throw them out, besides, red wines have tannins, right? Also, I thought I”d read that wine was sometimes used as ink. […]

Left-handed Project (part 1)

,

So this post had me thinking a lot about my friends who are left-handed. Several of which have lamented not being able to do calligraphy. Tonight was the first night I sat down and did a full quote in Foundational script with my left hand. In hindsight, it would have been easier to start with […]

Roy de Basillion - OSR

Do you know what makes me feel awesome? Having someone reach out to me and ask me to work on a scroll for or with them. This was one of those assignments. Basically, everything was put into motion and the Signet notified right before the assignment hit the queue. Anne and I started collaboration immediately […]

Kenneric Aubrey - OSB

And this is how you end up with multiple assignments, knowing people. A Facebook group chat was formed and I found myself in the middle of happy exclamations that this was, in fact, going to be a thing! I”d written Kenneric in for a Silver Brooch, but it didn”t get much traction. This time, however, […]

Alastar Tucker - OSB

I”ll admit, I was a little giddy when the Signet reached out to me about this assignment. I already had two others on my plate for the end of the month, but they were calligraphy only. I”m quite happy that through some careful planning I was able to wiggle this into the space between the […]
